Apple, Google poaching settlement appears headed for approval

I may have posted on this topic before so please forgive me. In my previous post regarding CEO to worker pay ratios I mentioned a recent debate of mine. In that debate the defender of the 1% also defended local companies conspiring not to take each other’s employees. Well, as you can see from the Reuters article that appears to be illegal.

From a higher level view, how can one preach less regulation / free markets yet support a non-free labor market by engaging in practices that restrict mobility? Sheer hypocrisy I suppose. Be it big guys like Apple or Google or little guys like small local companies.

Just trying to raise awareness…
